ac_generator


Name:
ac_generator - provides AC input current
Description:
 

This device produce an ac-current which are sent by a CurrentEvent. The
current is given by

I(t) = offset + amplitude * sin ( om * t + phi )

where

om = 2 * pi * frequency
phi = phase / 180 * pi

The parameters are

amplitude double - Amplitude of sine current in pA
offset double - Constant amplitude offset in pA
frequency double - Frequency in Hz
phase double - Phase of sine current (0-360 deg)

Setting start and stop (see StimulatingDevice) only windows the current
as defined above. It does not shift the time axis.

Sends:
CurrentEvent
